know one thing about him. he does not fail. let's hear it for the next president of the united states. [applause] >> thanks, sweetie. that's quite an introduction here. i got how many introductions tonight? anyone else want to offer an introduction? thank you. this really is a critical time for the country, and i think a time of choice. elections are always about choice. i think the choice is in more stark relief than most electrics. i think in part because of where the country is. i think when you have $16 trillion in debt, when you see places like europe facing fiscal calamity or crisis, while you recognize these are critical times, what you have in this country, 23 million americans out of work, 23 million. when half the kids coming out of college can't find work or work consistent with an education that includes college, think about that? this is america. what's happened? and so the president and i offered two very distinct paths. his path is one which has been not just spoken about, we've seen it. we don't have to guess what his path might look like or what he would do, because h
the united states as the move towards a democracy. the obama administration has said it is considering using sanctions against myanmar, also known as burma. this is one hour and 15 minutes. >> well, welcome to all of you. this is my first official of bent as the new president. what a thrill, frankly, to be here with you. her first visit to the united states in 20 years. no. a 40 years. and she chose to come to the institute for her first public address. we have wonderful partners in the society. and the blue moon a society. we have a great relationship with the state department of secretary clinton today. a number of her colleagues are here. kurt campbell. in addition, i would like to particularly recognize a couple of our board members. without her, i do not think this event would have occurred. i would like to thank her for coming. i like to turn things over. [applause] >> i join with jim. i want to tell you that this is an extremely large and important a pleasure that we have in welcoming all of you here today. it is an event in honor of remarkable individual. we welcome you and your dele
. >> i believe mitt romney wants to be president of all of the united states. this week we learned mitt romney wants to be president of half of the united states. if mitt romney were president, he weent waste time worrying about the 47% of americans who he believes are victims, who romney believes are unwilling to take personal responsibility and those are his words, madam president, not mine. he'll only worry about how the other half lives, i guess. that's what mitt romney told a group of wealthy donor at a closed door fundraiser in florida a month or so ago. but it turns out it wasn't closed. someone videotaped every word he said to his wealthy donors. but this is among other things what he said and this is a quote. "there are 47% who are dependent upon government, who believe that they're victims, who believe that government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they're entitled to health care, to food, to housing, you name it." mitt romney said his job as president would not be to, "worry about those people." but half of americans are those people. he went on to sa
of the united states, leader of the free world and so my question was how does he do it, how does he decide and make decisions? how does he govern? tom goldstein and "los angeles times" supreme court correspondent david savage diprete view of the supreme court new term starts october 1st. this one hour and 15 minute discussion was part of a forum hosted by the cato institute here in washington earlier this week. >> our conference concludes with a look ahead to october term 2012. the court's docket as of today is a bit sparse, but not without have to. indeed, were it not for last terms obamacare and the sv1070 cases you could say the coming term would be the term of the decade. the first to sittings the court will hear cases on property rights, racial preferences and higher education, and the fourth amendment as well as a follow-up to the class-action blockbuster from a couple years ago, wal-mart for nurses do. cato followed the cases as well as in several other but if granted would be high profile as well. challenges to section 5 of the voting rights act and the scope of the treaty power, f
trying to find solutions to the problems of the united states of america. if he loves the united states of america, he should be out on his hinny getting this stuff done instead of talking all over this television and running romney down. host: thanks for the call from dayton, tennessee. want to give you one more story on the day, this from "the washington post," for politicians privacy vanishes in the age of video technology. mitt romney's mistake in speaking bluntly at a may fundraiser was not only in the words he spoke but failing to anticipate the ears they might breach, and audience that looked like an exclusive group of republican donors this week multiflied thanks to the pervasiveness of video technology. they are already confiscating smart phones but they have been largely overmatched as time and again moments intended to be kept secret have turned up on the internet. there is a total collapse of the notion of private space that the republican strategist, and top advisor of senator john mccain's presidential campaign in 2008, increasingly, politicians who say one thing behind cl
you are president of the united states, you are president of all the people. not just the people who voted for you. >> you've got to look at what the guy has talked about through the whole campaign. he believes that every american has to have skin in the game. has to have a stake. and he doesn't want what the president wants works i is a bigger, more bloated government that's taking more people's money and being more oppressive on people's lives. he wants to empower individuals through sacrifice and opportunity to get their lives as date as they can and be make america greater. >> the real story behind these comments is what is behind it is president obama's very deliberate attempt to do class warfare as part of his campaign strategy. it's president obama who has decided to divide the electorate down those levels. >> i get the general feeling that with more and more people becoming dependent on government, that by next july we could perhaps be so -- it will be dependence day, not independence day. this is not something i am just feeling alone. >> oh, come on. oh, come on. >> this cou
to the united states. the court said he tried to conceal the murder of a british businessman committed by the wife of one of the nation's most senior politician. the verdict is due in about 10 days. >> in the capital of afghanistan, a feeble suicide bomber has killed at least 12 people, most of them foreigners. the clip claiming responsibility said it was a reaction -- the group claiming responsibility said it was reaction to a film that was blasphemous to islam. >> this is the single deadliest incident connected to that film so far. >> little remains of the car the attacker used tear ran into a small bus on its way to the airport. most of the passengers were pilots for an international air cargo company. >> the foreigners killed in this attack or of russian and south african nationality. >> shortly after the explosion, a radical islamic group claimed responsibility for the attack, saying the bomber was a 20-year- old afghan woman. a spokesperson said the attack was retaliation for the anti- islam video, "innocence of muslims" which portrays the profit, as a womanizer and a child abuse
helping mexican drug cartels acquire guns from the united states. and one of those guns was found at the scene of a murdered u.s. border patrol agent. our crime and justice correspondent joe johns has been going through this lengthy report getting a lot of reaction. joe, what are you finding out? >> wolf, it's the closest thing so far i would say to a definitive account of the investigation that everybody agrees was a terrible idea allowing firearms to slip south of the border to try to catch the cartels that were doing the gun running in mexico. the justice department's inspector general said operation fast and furious involved a series of misguided strategies, tactics,er rors in judgnt and management failures that permeated atf headquarters all the way to the justice department. and the near total disregard for public safety. congressional investigators had suggested there had been a cover-up in the justice department. but the report said federal officials actually ignored red flags, failed to ask questions, failed to send information up the chain of command. the report referred
obama. now to egypt, prosecutors announcing arrest warrants for several people in the united states, with alleged ties to the film that some say started all of this. of course that is in question. leland vittert is streaming live from cairo with the very latest. leland? >> reporter: now here in egypt those arrest warrants for the lack of a better term are symbolic. the united states will not extradite the seven coptic christians living in united states or for that matter the pastor from florida who supported film here to egypt. it shows the hard-line islamists are gaining in this country that really changed over the past 18 months. on tuesday egypt was the very first of this wave of anti-american violence and a number of the organizers at the protests of the american embassy there that ended up tearing down the u.s. flag said not only do they want these people involved in this film arrested, they want them tried under sharia law which could result in the death penalty if they do not repent. the penalty here in egypt would be, could be a prison term if these people are convicted of i
of this debate. ultimately the fault line in the united states is not the fault line between the people receiving federal assistance and those who aren't. what we want to do is get people off those things. that status ought to be transitional. and they ought to ultimately move to the point where they are, if you will, taxpayers or they working full time and so forth. that ought to be the debate, and that's what's missing. again, what's missing i actually think from this campaign is not just optimism, but it's a set of ideas on the economy, on the budget, on our role in the world. you can't -- neither candidate is actually putting forward much in the way -- you say an optimistic agenda. i'd also say a positive agenda and have two candidates who are painly counterpunching and they're refraining from putting forward ideas lest they be attacked. this is a very defensive campaign. so you don't say what tax expenditures you'd get rid of. you don't exactly say how you would curtail entitlements. everybody's playing defensive. but what this shows, but not playing offense, you're still on the defensive. b
, but it's also now put the united states front and center. the defense minister leon panetta has been in beijing for top level talks trying to reassure china that the united states is staying neutral on this dispute and wants to see it negotiated calmly. right now, of course, with the u.s. involved in this, this just goes to show how tense this situation is coming particularly at a time when china is now emerging as a hot button issue in the u.s. presidential election. stan grant, cnn, beijing. >>> as stan just mentioned defense secretary le panetta is talking to chinese leaders about those tensions riszing in asia. today he met with china's vice president in beijing. let's bring in cnn's michael holmes right now. this is a very difficult situation because you're talking about the u.s. military ally is japan, trade ally is china. how is leon panetta managing juggling all of this today? >> very carefully, i think, you could say. it's a real balancing act. you know, he is having to appear not to take sides. saying outright that the u.s. is not taking sides in this issue, while at the sa
in the united states. the reporting is of catherine herridge and she will have that coming up inside fox report. but, first, the war in afghanistan. a senior official or officer in the u.s.-led military alliance in afghanistan says the response to these insider attacks against our troops there will not result in a major shift in the exit strategy. so-called green on blue attacks have killed at least 51 coalition troops this year. today, the pentagon announced temporary move as they call it to stop most u.s. and nato troops from working side by side with their afghan forces. today an australian brigadier general deputy chief of staff for the coalition in afghanistan criticism that this could change the overall exit strategy for the war. >> i think it's going the smash the trust bond in the theater between us and them. and i don't think the temporary measures and what i think is pretty prudent response to a -- is going to change or damage the model that we have adopted for the campaign. >> shepard: afghan policemen and soldiers are scheduled to take over all security operations. we have to train
with all of us across the united states who really want to understand and help, um, the military family members who have served in the defense of our country to come back into their communities and to really be fully integrated and fully reintegrated into their communities. and i think that we all carry a sense of ownership and a sense of responsibility about that community. and no longer are military families isolated. and no longer should people who have served in the military only be either in military communities. we really have to embrace them as a national community: in our neighborhoods, in our schools, and, in that way, i think, we show our respect for the work that they have done. and, in fact, we want to embrace and be joyful about their service. and, at the same time, help them become the civilian members as they leave the military, the civilian members of the community that they can. i think it's all part of our national defense, it's all part of our national security. excellent. barbara, and broaden for us the definition of what a military family is. in the past, we looked
to -- all it is doing is antagonizing a very serious and volatile situation. france, like the united states is a democracy and we ber hind the issues of free speech and the press but when you have a tense situation where you've lost four american lives this is just going to make the situation a lot worse. this person who has published this had also published a cartoon, a negative cartoon i think about a year ago and the same type of situation. i know the french government asked him not to print it yet he did. this is going to become in my opinion -- >> the acting head of the egyptian brotherhood freedom and justice party told reuters he is going to call for a u.n. treaty against insulting religion. is that taking it too far? >> well, we are a democracy and we feel very strongly about our constitution and freedom of speech and freedom of the press and i think that's what we have to stand by as a democracy but we have to do whatever we can to, number one, as a country condemn this type of situation because of what occurs. let me give you my opinion on this. i think that part of the issue is a
the president do over these past several months, i will not divide the united states of america but instead, bring us together. >> he divides us. he tries to divide america, tear america apart. >> to divide our great country. >> and divide the american people. >> i will not divide this nation. >> we don't want to divide america. we want to unite america. >> mitt romney over the course of the campaign. today he went on fox news where he defended what he said on the leaked tape. >> i recognize that those people who are not paying income tax are going to say gosh, this provision that mitt keeps talking about lowering income taxes, that's not going to be real attractive to them and those that are dependent upon government and those that think government's job is to redistribute, i'm not going to get them. i know there's a divide in the country about that view. i know some believe that government should take from some to give to the others. i think the president makes it clear in the tape that was released today that that's what he believes. i think that's an entirely foreign concept. >> the tap
this is symbolic. the egyptian arrest warrants don't have any meaning in the united states. it stems from last tuesday here near the u.s. embassy in cairo where these protests all began. when they marched down towards the embassy. they ripped down the american flag to protest the movie. now the egyptian court wants to arrest seven coptic christians and one u.s. pastor allegedly behind this film. that is interesting i sat down with one of the organizers of one. protests a couple days ago, a man with very strong ties to al qaeda. he told me wants people tried by sharia law. under sharia law you are convicted of the insulting the prophet muhammad and don't repent you are executed. this move i about the egyptian courts shows how much egypt changed in 18 months. we went to a place a moderate islamic state to one really kowtowing to the demands of hard-line islamists and here demanding people's arrests, bill. bill: we watched it all flare up on friday last week. what is your sense of the violence, the potential of violence throughout the region? will it get worse? will it escalate or not, leland? >>
the pledge of allegiance to the flag. i pledge allegiance to the flag of the united states of america and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under god, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. the presiding officer: the clerk will read a communication to the senate. the clerk: washington, d.c, september 19, 2012. to the senate: under the provisions of rule 1, paragraph 3, of the standing rules of the senate, i hereby appoint the honorable kirsten e. gillibrand, a senator from the state of new york, to perform the duties of the chair. signed: daniel k. inouye, president pro tempore. mr. reid: madam president? the presiding officer: the majority leader. mr. reid: i now move to proceed to calendar number 499, s. 3521, which is the tax extenders legislation reported out of the finance committee previously. the presiding officer: the clerk will report. the clerk: motion to proceed to calendar number 4, s. 3521, a bill amend the internal revenue code of 1986 to extend certain expiring provisions. mr. reid: madam president, following my remarks and those of my distinguishe
for mitt romney. >> all right. thank you very much to john king. >>> the united states and china appear to be an o collision course. china has promised to investigate today after protesters swarmed u.s. ambassador's car in beijing. he got stuck in a demonstration which was technically taking place over japan's control of islands in the south china sea. it was an image which got a lot of people's attention and caused anxiety given actions we've seen in the middle east. the move in china comes as leon panetta wrapped up a very important visit. a crucial visit. he met with the future chinese president and on the agenda, the american military build up in asia, which china sees as a direct threat. and in fact, the relationship between the u.s. and its allies has become one of the bigs issues of 2012. a big sign the president could be losing ground when it comes to foreign policy. we wanted to talk about this poll and stood out to me. take a look at this poll. it shows the president's approval rating on the issue of foreign policy has fallen 12 points among independents. "outfront" tonight, s
commanders in chief, i think americans will side with the president of the united states. >> i wanted to also play a little bit of what mitt romney said on taxes on fox today. >> i do believe that we should have enough jobs and enough take home pay such that people have the privilege of higher incomes that allow them to be paying taxes. i think people would like to be paying taxes. >> ben, is that an effective response on the 47% comments? >> well, governor romney certainly talked before about how the fact that he personally tries to pay the lowest rate possible. look, medium -- median incomes have started to go up over the past year. the question americans have who has the plan to restore economic security for the middle class and sustainable jobs for the middle class. we haven't heard that from mitt romney. he would return to the same policies that caused the economic crisis in the first place and devastated the middle class. the fact is the president is out there, he's got a plan to invest in education and research and development and manufacturing, reduce the deficit, in a balanced way to
, 129 inmates, are free after a daring escape just three miles from the united states. this border crossing at eagle pass, texas is on alert and residents of the sleepy border city have been warned to call police if they see strangers. mexican prosecutors say the escapees, including many members of violent drug cartels, dug a tunnel through the prison's workshop. while a great escape through a tunnel may remind you of the "shawshank redemption," in this case it wasn't just one escapee. all 129 squeezed one by one through an opening a few feet wide. they used ropes and electric cables to pull themselves to the guard tower where they tied up the guard. next they cut the chain link fence that stood between them and freedom and ran for it. authorities think the tunnel had been around a few months and doubt the inmates dug it without anyone knowing. in fact, police have detained the prison director and a dozen guards suspecting this escape was an "inside job." tonight, mexican special forces are working to put the escapees back there. ryan owens, abc news, dallas. >>> now we have late n
of operational plot against the united states. >> i don't think whether or not whether obama or romney wins we're going to see this technology go away or see any greater minimized use of it because of their own approach. i think we've seen that president obama is most definitelying willing to exskut this signature apart from his counterterrorism agenda, and it would be very hard for romney to roll that back even if he wanted to. >> reporter: whether it's romney or obama in the oval office, the bigger problem with drones may be the international pushback from governments and human rights groups increasingly voicing their opposition. barbara stahr, cnn, the pentagon. >>> an intriguing new piece of history. a tiny piece of paper, or shroud, is once again raising the big question of whether jesus of married. a harvard professor says she's been studying the three-inch writing sample that includes a reference to jesus' wife. the fragment dates to the second century. the professor karen king is quick to say that the fragment, "does not provide evidence that jesus was married." >>> and an amazing medi
